• My 2018 Goals

    Hey everyone, firstly I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! I have a good feeling about this one…especially after the shit show of 2017. What the fuck was that, universe?! I’ve got a few things I’d like to do and achieve this year and I am confident and motivated to do them! Here we go 2018… Start Yoga I’ve wanted to start yoga for a long time now but have either not had the motivation or confidence to do it. I feel like it’s going to improve my mental health so much and make me feel so well in general. My best friend Ben gave me such…

  • Acceptance of your Mental Health

    As I grow I am really learning to accept my anxiety for what it is. I guess I would see it as a friend, a weird fucking friend who wants to destroy your life but you can’t let them go because they’ve been your friend for so long. So long that you don’t know what you would do without them, because they seem to act like they know what they’re doing, they’ve seen life in a different way and they want to keep you safe. This is bullshit, they don’t want to do any of those things for you. They are like a jealous friend who sees that you have…

  • Ways To Distract and Be Kind To Yourself…

    Hello everyone! So over the months I have been using distraction as a way to erm…distract myself…I fucking rule at writing. ANYWAY, when things are a bit shit I have to distract myself, thats the way to get out of the vicious circle that is anxiety. When I was in my darkest moments even distraction would not work and I still have those days now I’ll be honest! But when I can distract myself it is good and it is fun. It is all about self love, looking after number one and treating number one to the goodness that the world has to offer. I’ve just made a list of…

  • It’s Okay..

    Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! How am I you so eagerly ask? I’m okay…I am getting there. Well and truly getting there, some days are bad, some days are fucking awful but some days are okay. I am slowly getting my motivation back, slowly getting a calmer mind and seeing that it’s all going to be okay day by day. I am almost at the ideal weight my nurses want me to be at and I’ve never reached that point before, I am proud. What a roller coaster it has been. I think about that a lot, I claim this year has been the worst of my…

  • World Mental Health Day 2017

    Hey everyone, The time of year has come again where we all seem to recognise mental health, and that’s great. It should be recognised and fought for every single day but if one day makes more people stand up and talk and stand up and realise what is happening then again, that is great. Over the last few months I have written quite a few of blog posts talking about how I’m getting on and my on going struggles with my own mind. With this I have had quite a few people come and speak to me about their own troubles and that is AMAZING. It’s fucking terrible that they…

  • “Love” with Anxiety.

    Hellooooo everyone another mental health post, oh me. I’m surrounded by love and support there’s absolutely no denying that. I have more friends than I could ever dream of, I’ve always been lucky to find friends in different places. I have my life long friends, my work friends, my friends from uni, my online friends that I’ve met through bands and my international friends (Erin, that’s you). I have so much love to shower me in.I have a big loving family and a bloody lovely boyfriend. I love to love.The hardest thing with suffering from anxiety and depression is to know that you’re upsetting those who love you so much and…

  • All The Good Things

    Hey sweets, In times of poor mental health it is always easy to forget the good things you are surrounded with. It is also always easy for people to say to you “you have everything going for you, why are you letting this beat you?” – for starters, it’s not a choice. To be depressed, riddled with anxiety etc is not a choice. It is a chemical imbalance, just a little error in the make up of our brains, going off track on the road you were following. But never a choice.  I have been at the receiving end of comments like these, I know I am a very lucky…

  • Self Worth.

    Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well!  It’s been a while, my life has been a whirlwind since the last time I posted, the New Year really treated me to a multitude of shite all at once. Thanks Universe.  I had to deal with a break up, leaving a house and my Grandad passing away all in the space of a couple of weeks. Firstly, I was broken, didn’t think I’d be able to cope. Then my Grandad passed away and as much as I fucking miss him and wish he was still here, it put life and everything into perspective.  I haven’t let myself wallow, I haven’t sat…

  • You’re Doing Okay

    Hey everyone! Firstly I’d like to say a Happy New Year to you all, let’s make it one full of positivity and love and all the good shit. I’ve slacked so much on the blog lately and I’ve said this a billion times on here but my motivation has been fucked. I have been poorly over Christmas and not wanted to do a thing let alone blog. I’ve got some blog ideas in my head so they’ll come shortly, you know, the usual 2017 goals, BLAH BLAH BLAH. For now though I wanted to just talk about what’s going on, where I’m at, how I’m feeeeeeeeeling. Hi my name is…

  • Positive Tuesdays: The One When I Went To Ireland.

    Hiiiiiii guys, it’s Tuesday it’s time to be positive about the previous week. I’ve had a great one but also a very, very tough one in my little brain. It’s a strange feeling when you’re stuck in your recovery, when you also feel so lonely but you have amazing people around you…you just need those extra ones to show they care. OKAY NO, this is not the name of the game, if I want to be a negative Nelly then I will make a whole new post. Anyway, this week was full of fun! To be fair I missed the previous week because I was in Dublin last week, so…
